Our ‘Cool the Heat’ program benefits Waco’s most vulnerable residents during extreme heat emergencies. Waco, please help by donating fans at your nearest fire station. (The program can only accept new fans because of safety issues). Our partner, Mission Waco, will distribute the fans to individuals and families who need them most. Questions? Call our Fire Administration Office at (254) 750-1740 for more information.
Older adults, medically challenged, and homebound individuals are more susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. A fan in a room can reduce the temperature up to 10 degrees or more.
